Aaargghh! "Jazz Is Dead" !! One of the most disappointing GD-related albums I've ever bought (along with "Fire On The Mountain" for that matter, which has one or two highlights but not many).

I reckon The Decemberists probably should win. The Phil and Friends version is pretty flaccid.

"Fire On The Mountain" disappointing?

I'm assuming you mean Volume 2.

I was referring to "Fire On The Mountain: Reggae Celebrates The Grateful Dead". It's a while since I heard it but I seem to remember that the Steel Pulse and Toots Hibbert selections were OK; otherwise a forgettable collection.

I have a live Jazz Is Dead show that I found worthy of a few listens - never heard the album though
